The Swiss Alpes in Zürich, Switzerland.

Switzerland, another one checked from my bucket list. I was pretty lucky to have this flight at the last moment in my roster and for my luck, the crew was awesome as well. We arrived at 8:00pm at the hotel and we arranged to meet up at the lounge to organize what we were going to do in the morning. While we were chatting and sharing ideas, we ordered a Swiss Burger along with a local beer. I was so excited, I mean, I’ve always wanted to eat a Swiss burger, that I even asked the waitress impatiently “Is it really the burger from the Swiss cow? Local cow? The big cows?” She laugh and said “Yes, not imported. All meat is from our local Swiss cows.” The burger was juicy, thick and big. Totally what I was expecting. After eating our juicy delicious burger, we finally agreed to rent a car and drive to the Swiss Alps which was an hour and half of trip. We met at 8am next day, ate some quick breakfast and left, we were like 7 of us. This was a great and one of a life time crew opportunity, I’m not exaggerating. Most crew don’t even do anything and they see renting a car like a big deal. Fortunately, we all wanted to see the alps and have a wonderful road trip experience in beautiful Switzerland.

IMG_8824We passed the city which had some classic old architecture, the view of the farms, nature, green everywhere, the amazing mountains…the road trip was beautiful indeed. I totally recommend it, you will enjoy the amazing views and good sightseeing spots to take photos. After an hour or so, we arrived at Rigis Swiss Alps. A breathtaking panoramic view across the Alps along with one of the oldest mountain railways, enjoyed the surroundings of 3 different water bodies. It has well signposted hiking trails, perfect for walks and mountain hikes. The flora view is amazing, mountains, lakes etc. It will really delight you. This is also located at the central of Switzerland. The whole area offers hotels, restaurants, souvenirs shops, hiking in summer and skiing in the winter! We didn’t hike, we took the rack railway, recommended as well. You’ll enjoy the view.

Hello Singapore!

This past month I’m on reserve until the first week of June. So it’s been annoying because you don’t know your days off or if you’ll be on duty until last-minute or a day before, so you can’t  really set plans ahead or anything. So I was on home standby and before I went to bed I checked my roster and, YESSS ! I got a multisector! finally! My last multisector was in march when I had the famous 8 days trip to Bangkok-Sydney-Christchurch, the longest trip of Emirates. So I was so happy that I got this time another one and a good one as well. Singapore-Brisbane 4 days trip. Singapore always amazed me and I wanted to go to Brisbane to visit the Koala Sanctuary. I’m going to divide the post, the same I did with Bangkok-Sydney. So this one is for Singapore, oh Singapore!

 

Singapore a global financial centre with a tropical climate, multicultural population and also known by their beautiful buildings designs ahh! I just couldn’t wait to see the night life. We arrived in the afternoon and after a long 8hour flight I decided to have a power nap…yeah right. The power nap ended to be a long beauty sleep. I woke up at 7pm same day. All the crew had already been in Singapore so nobody really wanted to go out. I decided to grab a map and go to the Marina Bay alone which was near. It was beautiful, the buildings were so shiny at night, the environment of people having a good time, restaurants full of people, couples everywhere, live music, traditional food etc. I just sat enjoying the amazing view of the bay, took some photos and walked to the Merlion. I stayed at the Marina Bay ’till 11pm. Next day I had Brisbane flight departing at afternoon so I had plenty of time to rest. These are some of night photos of the Marina Bay:

 

Two days later after arriving back to Singapore from Brisbane, I was so tired. We arrived at in the morning, still I wanted to explore a little bit of Singapore plus enjoy the Marina Bay once again but in daylight. Most likely I don’t booked myself into tours, but since I was so tired for walking and reading maps, I just schedule a group tour guide and went in the afternoon. One of the crew, a so nice girl from Spain went with me too. It was a 3 hour tour, just some quick stops in some point of interest of the city, just what I was looking for. I even slept in the bus! haha oh God! But this is so handy when it comes for a short stay and want to see almost everything with short stops or when you’re tired of navigating.  These are some places we visited and enjoyed:

Safari at Nairobi, Kenya

I’m 2 post behind. I’ve been flying a lot, however I will not stop posting my adventures. But you can always follow me on Instagram for daily posts.

Now, let’s begin with Nairobi shall we!

Not many crew likes African flights however..I do! I like Africa, it’s a different culture, food and people. The first and only thing we did was going for the safari. Unfortunately we did not see much of animals and I was disappointed, although I really enjoyed the trip with the crew. Was a lovely flight coming in and out. Passengers are very lovely and the people in Nairobi same as well. I did wanted to see wild animals..more exotics but it’s nature and it’s something that we humans can’t control indeed. They took us into the wild very early in the morning when the heat of the sun is not that intense and the animals are out searching for food. For my luck, maybe the animals decided to sleep-in or something, all I watched was zebras..and more zebras. Beautiful indeed, but where were the lions at least? Well, I think everything happens for a reason because this month roster I have Johannesburg! There I can finally go to the lion park, cuddle the cubs and die in peace haha! Enjoy my photos!

The Grand Canyon

As you all know, I’m from Puerto Rico and traveling to USA it’s more than usual. However, The Grand Canyon has always been in my top list. When I arrived and finally get to see it with my own eyes… I almost cried!. The Grand Canyon is one of the most remarkable (7) natural wonders in the world, located in the state of Arizona in the United States, and was created by the Colorado River. Although not the longest canyon in the world, but it’s recognize because of the overall scale and size combined with beautifully colored landscape.

This view and experience cannot be missed! I mean, I know I’m a nature freak, but if you traveled to Arizona and didn’t visit the Grand Canyon…you definitely didn’t visit Arizona!
